OUR PROFILE

The Cambodian Federation of Employers and Business Associations (CAMFEBA), established on 13 June 2000, is an autonomous and independent federation of employers and Business Associations recognized and registered with the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training of Cambodia. Having been established due to the increasing need for the private sector to stand together with a unified voice, CAMFEBA has become the single federation representing, promoting and safeguarding the rights and interests of employers in Cambodia. CAMFEBA provides a forum for consultation and discussion among members on matters of common interest, and seeks for the adoption of sound principles and practices of human resource and industrial relations through information, legal advice, research, training and other activities.

As of September 2013, CAMFEBA is collectively representing over 1500 employers, both unionized and non-unionized, comprising of 6 Business Associations as Association members, 203 individual companies as individual members and 21 non-profit organizations as the Associate members.

CAMFEBA is recognized nationally, regionally and internationally as the sole employers’ representative in Cambodia. It works closely with the ILO and is the sole employers’ representative from Cambodia to the International Labor Conference held in Geneva every year. CAMFEBA is also a member of the International Organization of Employers (IOE), the ASEAN Confederation of Employers (ACE) and the Confederation of Asia-Pacific Employers (CAPE).

We represent you where it matters most!

CAMFEBA represents members at many national and international arenas. To list some, we are a member of the National Training Board, the NSSF Board, the Labor Advisory Committee, etc. CAMFEBA is the sole organization representing employers in Cambodia at the International Labor Conference of the ILO which is held once a year in Geneva, Switzerland.
